About the show
A surreal, chaotic and clever animated children’s comedy series, The Amazing World of Gumball originally debuted on Cartoon Network in 2011. This British-Irish-American show was created by Ben Bocquelet and is produced by Cartoon Network Development Studio Europe, Dandelion Studios, Studio SOI and Boulder Media Limited. The 40-episode fifth season premiered on September 5, 2016.
No one would probably be too surprised if Cartoon Network actually made a series about anthropomorphic gum, but it hasn’t done that quite yet – this one follows Gumball Watterson, a 12-year-old cat and his adopted goldfish sibling Darwin They are the central duo in this family comedy show which follows their adventures in the fictional US town of Elmore. Their family is a multi-species one, with two rabbits and another cat in the picture. Gumball and Darwin’s shenanigans at home and around town are always fun, genuine, eclectic and silly.
Ratings and potential renewal
The current fifth installment saw a drop in viewership, premiering just above one million viewers, and later dipping below this mark, which barely ever happened in the preceding seasons. The numbers are still certainly strong enough for The Amazing World of Gumball to last, but the downward trend is present. In a bit of troubling rumors, on September 6, 2016 Gumball’s creator Ben Bocquelet announced his departure from the show after the sixth season, but has not revealed what may happen to the series itself. We will pay extra attention to the announcements regarding Gumball’s future, and will inform you as soon as any important news are released.
UPDATED October 6, 2016: The five-time Annie-nominated Cartoon Network hit The Amazing World of Gumball will be returning for season 6 some time in the future.

It will be the last season on the show for the series’ creator Ben Bocquelet, and Gumball’s future is unclear after that, although the show’s popularity is almost surely bound to bring another season on. Stay tuned, and we’ll inform you of the release date as soon as it is announced by the Cartoon Network.
